She said: “I heard a growl from a cave. I stayed silent as I didn’t want to attract this wild animal before me.”

A wild camper said he heard squeals at night and saw “golden eyes” reflected in his torch.

A third said she spotted a large, black animal in Pen Braich, about 12 miles north.

She said: “I tried to go near it but it disappeared into the woods.”

Another man spotted a print at a disused quarry.

He said: “It was bigger than my fist.”

The sightings have been reported to Puma Watch North Wales.
